 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS From Petros Hadjicostas, Aug 25 2019: (Start) Both formulas below follow from the theory in the documentation of array A309951. We have Sum_{s = 0..A000041(3)} (-1)^s * A309951(3,s) * a(n-s) = 0, i.e., a(n) - 10*a(n-1) - 27*a(n-2) + 18*a(n-3) = 0 for n >= 4. This is a consequence of Eq. (6) on p. 248 of Abramson and Promislow (1978), where we let t=0 in the equation. In the explicit formula by Vaclav Kotesovec below, a(n) = 6^n - 2*3^n + 1^n, the numbers 1, 3, 6 (that are raised to the n-th power) are the multinomial coefficients of the A000041(3) = 3 integer partitions of 3: 1 = 3!/3!, 3 = 3!/(1!2!), 6 = 3!/(1!1!1!).

(6) on p. 248 (set t:=0). FORMULA Empirical: a(n) = 10*a(n-1) - 27*a(n-2) + 18*a(n-3).
